Wind River, Wy – The Wind River Tribal college sent its first graduates into the world this month. They received associate of arts degrees in general studies. The college also offers degrees in Arapaho language and environmental science, and plans to add degrees in social work, early childhood development and business. College director Marlin Spoonhunter says that should help degree-seeking reservation residents who have had to travel many miles to the nearest community college.
Laramie, WY – The body of a 24-year-old man was found in a creek in Jackson, and investigators are treating the case as a possible homicide. They say that Jonathan Aaron Koberna had a broken jaw and a cut on top of his head and may have gotten into a fight. However, an autopsy shows that neither those injuries nor drowning was the cause of death. Teton County Sheriff's Captain Jim Whalen says investigators are "scratching their heads" over how Koberna died. It's also not known exactly where and when he died. A man walking his dog found Koberna's body in Flat Creek Wednesday afternoon.
